@Snow - I noticed you have Manga Entertainment listed under the manga section. Manga Entertainment do not license manga and never have. The titles in question are anime and thus belong in the anime section.

Anime Limited are apparently reevaluating whether it's worth it to release Ameiro Cocoa (apparently the total number of orders on amazon so far has been 2). Not confirmed to not be getting a release, but it may not be coming.
